At Sport-N-Fun, miniature golfers putt their way through three 18-hole courses adorned with statues of exotic wildlife such as gorillas and giraffes.

Dipson Theatres celebrates a reputation as a regional movie institution with a network of 12 locations lighting 57 silver screens across Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania. Though the company now spreads across the northeast United States, it began in the small city of Batavia, NY, in 1939—a time when movies were called “picture shows,” Roosevelt was in the White House, and everybody could only see in black and white. Today that tradition underlies the cinematic experience as patrons chomp popcorn and sip sodas, marveling at modern 3-D visual adventures, summer action movies, family-friendly features, or even indie art flicks and footage from world-renowned opera performances.
The instructors at Focus First Firearms Training, LLC don't have to brag about their skills—they can let their resumes do it for them. After all, they're made up of NRA-certified firearms instructors, IALEFI members, IDPA and IPSC competitive shooters, IDPA-certified range-safety officers, and even certified martial-arts instructors. Together, the team teaches real-world firearm techniques in the safety of carefully conducted classes. Using live ammunition, students hone their marksmanship while under duress, and they practice proper drawing techniques, shooting on the move, and shooting from cover. Close-quarter live-fire drills and hand-to-hand combat are regularly practiced on private fields, and instructors discuss different marksmanship techniques for shotguns, rifles, and pistols during advanced classes on tactics and weapons. Classes are held at different locations and employ a martial-arts dojo for physical skills and private live-fire courses for tactics lessons. The Concealed Pistol License courses comply with the State of Michigan requirement under Section 5J of 1927 Public Act 372.
